Rabbi Dov Lipman was elected to the 19th Knesset in January 2013, making him the first American born MK in nearly 30 years. He rose to national and international prominence for his role in combatting religious extremism in Bet Shemesh. Since 2015, former MK Lipman has been a columnist for the Jerusalem Post and Times of Israel, a political commentator for ILTV and i24 News, and has focused on Israel advocacy both in Israel and abroad.
Earlier this year he was appointed as Senior Manager – Community Outreach at Honest Reporting.
As a backgrounder this week I am playing a speech Dov Lipman gave in Melbourne 3 years ago as special guest of the ZFA at their annual conference on Jewish education.
